My family and I visited this when we were at the Irish Festival this year. The church is beautiful and the staff was very friendly. I encourage everyone to visit this piece of American history.

What a delightful surprise....and what a treat. The characters in period costume were awesome...and what a history lesson! Prior to entering the church additional info/history of the graveyard and church is provided. The church is magnificent...and the lesson in history was awe-inspiring....even for 4 little 'ole "vintage" ladies from the 'South! Great for ALL ages.

This tour is just the right length for you and your kids, very turning point history for our country. This is the site where Patrick Henry delivered his "give me liberty or give me death" speech to many "key" people who shaped our country. Worth the price, very affordable, leave time to walk a couple blocks on historic Church Hill.

St John's gives a good guided tour of the place in which Patrick Henry gave his 'Give me liberty or give me death' speech. Indeed, what he said was seditious..and had the Colonies not gone to war he could have been tried by the British and hanged for the content of this speech!

I really enjoyed my visit. The location is easy to get to and street parking was ample. I really wanted to visit Edgar Allen Poe's mother's grave. I always loved Poe! It was an interesting visit and I recommend for anyone in any age group. Thank you St. John's Episcopal Church for keeping the history alive!

This is a beautiful, quaint church packed full of history. Attend the reenactment of Patrick Henry's "Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death" speech. You won't be disappointed! And a great gift shop.

This church takes only an hour or so to explore thoroughly, and it is well worth your time. It takes a bit of searching, since it is located in a mostly residential neighborhood, but it is such a historical gem, as well as an operating Episcopal church, that it is time well spent. Poke around the churchyard for a bit;... More
